Message: Star Navigation Remembers MH370
TORONTO, March 08, 2018 - Star Navigation Systems Group Ltd. (CSE:SNA) (OTCQB:SNAVF) (CSE:SNA.CN) ("Star” or the “Company”).
March 8th will mark four years since the disappearance of MH370. The aircraft, a Boeing 777-200ER with 239 souls onboard, operated by Malaysia Airlines, was one of the most modern aircraft flying at the time and was en-route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
The aircraft disappeared after apparently veering away from its flight path and no one has yet been able to explain what happened or where the Boeing ended its flight. There have been theories and speculation on what happened, but none have been substantiated to date.
The official search, conducted by Malaysia, Australia and China over a period of almost 3 years, was finally called off. Scattered pieces of aircraft debris have been found scattered far away from the initial search zone of 120,000 Sq. Km. A new extended search zone of more than 25,000 sq km, will soon be searched by a private company.
Following the loss of MH370, as well as, Air France flight AF447 in 2009, Star worked with several regulatory Authorities, including the French BEA and the ad-hoc aviation working-groups from the ITU and ICAO, on developing connectivity, advanced tracking and data safe retrieval.
INDUSTRY FAILURE TO IMPLEMENT TRACKING PROVISIONS
Star successfully demonstrated its ability to track and monitor aircraft, even in remote and trans-oceanic areas. In March, 2016, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) adopted new aircraft tracking provisions designed to gradually take effect by 2021. These provisions include a requirement that aircraft carry a device that can autonomously transmit its location every minute during emergency circumstances, as well as enhancing the ability to recover and make available aircraft recorded data in a timely manner.
Unfortunately, as of this solemn anniversary, the commercial aerospace industry has yet to implement aircraft tracking technology that would provide operators, authorities and the public the means necessary to both track the route followed by distressed aircraft and the health of its critical systems and to effect a prompt rescue or recovery.
STAR NAVIGATION STANDS READY TO DELIVER
Star Navigation stands ready to deliver its patented technology solution now. Star has proven its ability to provide immediate location information of any aircraft in the world and critical data with respect to events aboard the aircraft prior to an incident.
The Star solution is independent from the crew and tamper proof. Information transfer is via satellite, encrypted and secure.
The Star solution is not only affordable, it provides significant ROI through savings generated by features ranging from stricter fuel management to more effective preventive maintenance.
The families of the MH370 passengers and crew and future families who are destined to suffer the same fate and anguish until solutions are implemented, deserve more. It is our hope and mission that the human cost of tragedies such as MH370 will be mitigated through the use of currently available technology.
